Bill GeistJust in time for Father's Day! The talented father-son team of Bill and Willie Geist share stories of their funny and heartwarming relationship. Told in a unique back-and-forth banter style, this extended conversation riffs on everything from music and sports to summer camp, driving lessons, and family life.

After Bill went public with his struggle with Parkinson’s disease, the Geists decided to collaborate on this book so their children and grandchildren would have a record of their unique bond.
